Suicide is a major, preventable public health problem. In fact, it's the tenth leading cause of death. Luckily, one local family is looking to change that.
This year will be the 2nd annual Run To Overcome depression.
It was started to bring awareness to the disease after Adam Zetterman, a nurse at Bryan LGH committed suicide.
His family wanted to do something to help others. Sister Amy Olson says, “grief is really difficult and doing something to bring awareness is healing…very therapeutic.”
Dave Miers with BryanLGH says, “the race is a great way to bring awareness to depression. Exercise, sleep and nutrition are very…those three things are very key in terms of somebody who's being treated for depression.”
The run is Sunday, September 30th at Southwest high school. Visit www.bryanlgh.com
